Charlie's Angels star Drew Barrymore will earn a staggering $80 million (GBP50 million) from the action movie's hit sequel.

The actress - who makes more than fellow Angels Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu because of her role as a producer on CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE - stands to rake in the sum if the new movie is a success at the box office.

Twenty eight year old Drew leads a gang of girls - including her current co-stars - whose salaries are rapidly catching up with those of their male counterparts.

Drew earned $40 million (GBP26 million) from the first Charlie's Angels film, while Cameron received $20 million (GBP13 million) for the sequel.

Other high earners include sex bomb Angelina Jolie, who earned $12 million (GBP7.5 million) for her role in Tomb Raider 2 -THE CRADLE OF LIFE, and REESE WITHERSPOON who picked up $15 million (GBP9.5 million) to star in LEGALLY BLONDE: Red, WHITE AND BLONDE.
